The seating system by designer Christophe Pillet will be the highlight of the showroom space in Boulevard St. Germain

 

On the occasion of Paris Design Week, the international design exhibition held from 7th to 11th September, CAPPELLINI will highlight at its showroom in Boulevard St. Germain the new “High Time” seating collection designed by Christophe Pillet and launched last April at Milano Design Week.

This confirms the long-standing collaboration and friendship between the French designer and the Italian company.

 

With its sharp and timeless lines, “High Time” embodies exactly CAPPELLINI’s vision: producing flexible and contemporary furniture with a sophisticated essence and an international look and feel. Christophe Pillet for CAPPELLINI brings his designing experience to a tailoring dimension. Forms are built in details and a significant work on the ergonomics of armrests, so high and graceful, conveys total comfort. Sharp lines are softened with the definition of volumes taking shape in a surprising gradual control. The tubular metal base lifts the seat and emphasizes its visual lightness. The upholstery is completely removable and launches a new era in this sector.

 

“High Time” is a broad collection of modular systems comprising two- and three-seat sofas, central and angular elements, a chaise longue, a series of pouffes and coffee tables to be combined in new and original compositions.

The comfort lies in contained dimensions and a rigorous design making “High Time” suitable for both home décor and public spaces such as hotels, offices and lounges.

 

The broad range of finishing for the supporting metal structure and for the leather and fabric upholstery make “High Time” highly customizable encompassing aesthetics ranging from discreetly neutral to shout-out-loud; a contemporary classic varying according to the different architectural contexts in the world.
